Windshield Repair and Replacement
If your windshield is damaged, then you must get it fixed as soon as possible. Our team of glass specialists at Glass Doctor® of Savannah is able to repair most windshield damage, but there are a few instances in which safely repairing your windshield is impossible, making a full windshield replacement necessary. Allow our specialists to determine the best course of action for your car.
Windshield Care Factors
To determine whether you need a windshield repair or replacement, our glass specialists consider the following factors:
- Size of the Damage: Cracks longer than three inches and chips wider than 3/8 inch generally require a full replacement. There are a few exceptions to this rule our glass specialists are able to identify.
- Location of the Damage: When a crack reaches the edge of your windshield, the pane will require replacement because it is likely to spread, even after a repair. Any damage to your windshield that is directly in your line of sight requires replacement because windshield repairs cause minor visual distortion.
- Cleanliness of the Damage: Excess dirt in a crack or chip will prevent the repair resin from properly curing.

Insurers Love Windshield Repairs

Windshield Repair is the Greenest Approach
Because no new auto glass is needed for a windshield repair, your current auto glass doesn't go to a landfill.
The Windshield Repair Process
After fully cleaning the site of the damage, we inject a special resin into the crack or chip. After the resin fully cures, we polish it to a smooth finish for the best possible visual clarity and aesthetic appearance. After this, your repair is complete and you will be ready to go.
If a windshield repair is possible, visit our team immediately. Windshield damage becomes worse over time, and you may not be able to get a repair the glass if the damage is allowed to worsen.
